It seems I am thinking the first sets . I knew the 2nd sets were planed, but not as much as they actually were . I assumed they would plan the sequence of the pre-drums segment , and while the drummers ere bashing away plan the second part . Looks like from they might have had a general idea for the whole set, and ever once in a while they go down a different road than the planed one .
I am surprised they would have to tell the lighting folks ,seems to me it would be pretty easy to adapt to what song they were playing , but what do I know (!)

Looks most of the replys seem to confirm what I thought
all along. You can't tell me that a night stadium gig
and the lights/ sound people are not going to know what was coming. Yes in the earlier days when there was noodling
to an intro then yes maybe, but like I said previously when eveything became digital it all changed. As for
picking it as they went you'd be late on cues and all your timing would be off.Things got very sophisticated at the end that it wouln't surprise at all.One last observation
I could of sworn I saw formal lists on at least the keys
set-up at the RFKstadium show vid.
